The picturesque Hardangerfjord is Norway’s second largest fjord. In spring and early summer, Hardanger is characterised by beautiful blossoming fruit trees. Later, once the fruit has been picked, you can buy boxes of apples, plums and cherries from the local farmers along the road. It truly is as idyllic as it sounds. A total of 19 local producers of Hardanger Cider, a protected term similar to Champagne, preserve the cultural heritage – and you are welcome to a taste!
